When people think of their health, often it’s the challenges we face that come to mind. From broken bones to complex diseases, too often we focus only on treating our problems. But what if a community not only addressed the need for unparalleled care, but also adopted a proactive approach where people were committed to living healthier lives. That’s what Healthy Plymouth is all about.
Healthy Plymouth takes a look at our community from a number of perspectives with a single goal – enriching the quality of our lives through better health. From our homes to places of work to our schools and ultimately, ourselves, Healthy Plymouth is a resource. Someplace we can all turn to for ideas and updates on how to be at our best.
Healthy Plymouth is for everyone. Because we are all different and have our own interests and starting points, it’s an online space where there is truly something for everyone. From information on farmers markets, to a wide array of physical activities, to nutritional information, to keeping our streets safe and secure – Healthy Plymouth lets us all find our own pathway to enjoying our lives through better health.
“Healthy Plymouth is a true collaboration,” says Plymouth Town Manager Melissa Arrighi. “Beyond partners like our town government, Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital, and the Plymouth school system, it represents a chance for each of us to get involved and make an investment in ourselves.”
Healthy Plymouth is our community joining together to identify meaningful ways to stay healthy and combining expertise and resources to bring these opportunities for good health to Plymouth.
